Mobility

A New MAC Protocol for Moving Target in Distributed Wireless Sensor Networks

Free registration required

Executive Summary

A Wireless Sensor Network (WSN) is composed of many nodes with limited power supply; most nodes are stationary in the network which could probably involve a few mobile nodes. Various Medium Access Control (MAC) protocols specially aimed at a target locating application for WSNs have been proposed. However, most of these protocols based on the problem of energy-limited does not consider the mobility of nodes. Therefore, in order to solve such problem, this paper proposes a MAC protocol - Distribute Moving-MAC (DM-MAC).
